Pa's Visit

Pa arrived Friday of last week and stayed through Sunday.  It was such a fun visit!

Lots of pics:



We walked Old Town to see all the creepy decor.


And, toured the Whaley House!



Travel Channel's #1 Most Haunted Site in the U.S.


"Carter, stand next to the sign."

Brat!


"Look, mom, I'm sitting on a ghost's lap."

Funny kid!




Listening to ghost stories.



The docent looked at Lainey's photos and confirmed she captured an orb in one!


One of my new favorites:



I want to stay here someday.....so cool!






There was a zombie walk slated for 6pm.  We saw everyone preparing.

Totally normal.





We toured the nearby cemetery to find people who haunt the Whaley House.  Found 2!


Zombies everywhere.





Went to Jim Croce's famous place for a drink prior to dinner out at Fogo de Chao.


Such a fun day!

Woke on Sunday to bowl and carve pumpkins.




Sweet Jack helped Lainey with the bowling aide.  



Jack is VERY much into the game.

Love this picture.


Three pumpkins for three kids!





With roasted seeds.  Yum.



We educated Pa on What Does the Fox Say and other pop culture essentials.

I'm sure he's so glad we did.


Next up, Halloween night!  Lots of party planning still going on at school and shortly after, we'll start preparing for Caroline's arrival in November.

Back soon!

What a perfect weekend! Was the haunted house creepy for the kids or what are the tours like?

Of course zombies walking around is totally normal ;)

The house is not a played up haunted house for Halloween. It's year round with historical tours. Doesn't have to be scary, but the real stories add the 'haunted' aspect. We love it! Kids loved it, too.

What a fun weekend with Pa! Our scaredy cat punks could have never survived that trip! The zombie family would have sent them packing. So funny!

Kristen said...

Okay. When Hann and I actually make it out for our epic visit, I think I would like Pa to be in town too. Let's see if we can make that happen. Make a note. Please and thanks.
Also... I really see a lot of Blake in Pa's features.
